    Franco Ice got a reaction from benzracing in DUNDEEL   
    Critically Dundeel had serious gas. Murray Baker maintained that had he and Andrew trained him specifically, he could have won a Group 1 sprint fresh-up.

    Passed away yesterday. What an observer of the thoroughbred.
     Ironically his article on Courage Under Fire, the night he won the Victorian Derby I think it was, was one of his very best.
    And the piece on Zephyr Bay and Leilani at Carrington Stud - that's what I call writing.
    Thanks Les for some wonderful insight. Not sure we'll see the likes of you again. RIP.

    Franco Ice got a reaction from Breeder in Terbium   
    Interesting pedigree this fella. Perhaps he's not quite a 'freak'but more an extremely judiciously bred individual.
    He's got sex balanced crosses of Grey Sovereign and Bletchingly as well as being linebred to Danehill. For good measure there's even a dose of old Sir Ivor.
    Throw in a magician as the trainer and you've got the kind of horse that keeps the dream alive.

    Franco Ice got a reaction from puha in Waipuk Jump outs   
    Thanks Neil for your sage advice as always. As a punter I share your sentiments wholeheartedly.
    Actually in this case its for the syndicate who own a horse who has won at the two most recent Waipuk jumpouts. Call it what you like but some of them would just be stoked to see her name up as winning something. 
    Still no reply from NZTR.

    Thanks for posting the Darley parade.
    What a line-up.
    Brazen Beau is some specimen. Hasn't he thrown to Bletchingly.
